The hosted domains feature of a website hosting account indicates the amount of registered domain names that one can include within the very same account. Registering a domain and hosting it are two completely different services although a lot of people consider them to be the exact same thing. While the registration signifies that you become the owner of a specific domain name, the hosting part is what actually allows you to have a website because this is where your data and emails are going to be. Because these are two separate services, you can register a new domain with one company and host it with another one by changing its name servers (DNS) - the domain shall work in the exact same way as if it was registered and hosted with the exact same company. Also, it is important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain name to an alternative company and not transferring it.
Hosted Domains in Hosting
The hosting solutions we offer enable you to host a different amount of domain addresses. In this way, you can select what plan to purchase and how much to spend in accordance with your needs. If you choose to host more domain addresses later on than the number the current package allows you to, you can effortlessly upgrade the whole plan or keep the same one and only add more slots for hosted domain names. If you want to use the registration services of a different company, you'll be able to see the name servers that you have to set for your domains so as to direct them to our cloud platform in the Hosted Domains area of the Control Panel on our end. If you want to have everything in one location, however, there is no limit for the number of domains which you can register/transfer within your account whatever the hosting plan you have picked. Then you can decide if you will host them or you will direct them to other existing domains.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you buy a semi-dedicated server plan through our company, you will be able to host as many domains as you wish regardless of whether you register them here or you already own them through a different company. We've decided not to restrict this feature given that the semi-dedicated plans are quite powerful and the load they're able to handle is fairly high, so it wouldn't add up to be able to host a restricted number of domain names. The accounts are handled using the Hepsia Control Panel, that will present you with complete control over your hosted domains. You can add a new domain name with a few mouse clicks and everything is done easily and intuitively, as opposed to alternative Control Panels where you may even have to switch between separate accounts to manage a couple of domain names. If you register a new domain name on our end, it will be hosted automatically in your semi-dedicated account.
